Oie of the many things which I have to regret, ays a correspondent of the British Banner, w hen I review my past lite, is that I did not, from ear liest youth, at least as soon as ever 1 was able lo do it, lake and preserve some good new. paper. How interesting would it be now to a sexagenari an to look into the papers which he read when he was twelve or sixteen, or twenty years old ! How many events would this call to mind which he has entirely forgotten! How many interesting associations and feelings would it revive! What a view would it give of past years ! What knowl edge would it pieserve by assisting the memory! And how many valuable purposes of even a liter ary kind, might it be rendered subservient to ! How much do I wish that 1 could look into such a record when composing this short article ! But newspapers are quite dillereut things now from what they were sixty, or twenty years ago. They are unspeakably more interesting and valu able ; in this respect, at least, (I believe in many others,) these times are better thao the former. Formerly the editors of newspapers wele obliged to strain their wits and exhaiisl their means in or der to obtain matter to fill their pages. Now the great difficulty is, to iiosert all the valuable, inter esting material that are poured upon them from every part of the wsild, and from every grade and phase of society.

The following is Mr. Buchanan's answer, and is one that will lie ri ad with much interest by the people in general : Wheatland, ni:ak Lancasteu, Siptintlir 2ih, 1819. (Jknim mkn : An absence from home of several weeks has prevented me from sooner acknowledging the receipt of your very kind invitation to visit Pittsburg, on my way to Meadville, where it is my pur pose to go, immediately after the election. This invitation, proceeding as it does from the delegates to 1 lie late Democratic Con. venlion of Allegheny County, as well as from a numbpr of my other Democratic frn-nds and fellow-ciliens, I most cheer fully and gratefully accept.

Democratic measures which they, at the first opposed. It is a ''"'""I historical fa,;,, we worlly of am. pie developemcnt, that the whig parly have lll . 'hough s'owly and reluctantly, yiel ded their acquiescence, one by one, to nearly a ,ll(.aiureSi anj lh(,y ,1;lve now bo-come the established policy of the country. When we review the many im portant political questions which, since the commencement of Mr. Jellerson's admin istration, have, in their day, agitated the nation and ever ihreaiened "the Union, and reflect that these have all, with scarcely an exception, been satisfactory settled by the Democratic party, we must be deeply im pressed with this high tribute to the 'Dem ocratic principles, our political opponents themselves being the judges. Fro i the very nam re of things, ;!S well as from the peculiar character of our insti tutions, two great parties must always ex ist, and I may add, always ought to exist, in this country ; ihe one conservative the. other progressive. T,L. one c'iiiginjr t the pasl, the other intent upon advancing gradually with the spirit of ihe age. The one claiming power for the Government, the other for the people. Tho one acting as a clog to the oilier, and sometimes pur haps impeding it.s t00 progress. The one is the great Whig, and the oilier the great Democratic parly of the country. It is our pride and our glory to belong to the party which, whilst bidding fast to ihe good, entertains no such slavish reverence for antiquity as to prevent it from advoca ting and adopting all new measures, consis tent with liberty an J order, calculated 1 1 benefit the great mass of mankind. Holding these principles, W(; cease to be Democrats if we did not ardent ly and actively sympathize with the patriots o( all nations in their struggle to free them selves from the hi,cLles of despotism, and to regain the lost rights of man. M'e have witnessed with intense anxiety, the nianv heroic efforts, within the past anil present year, of the downtrodden people through out Europe, lo achieve liberty and indepei; dence, and have had to deplore their diat Irons termination. Brute force now rules iu that quarter of the globe; but yet Eu rope is not ilesiino,! to become Cossack. It is true that the braie Hungarians ami Cermaiis am! Romans have bene conoiier- ed ; but their blood has not yet been shed in vain. In the Providence of Cod, it will sooner or later rise from the earth and claim a just retribution. The Spartan band at Thermopyhe were sacrificed by treachery and overwhelmed by numbers ; but ibis srerilicc was both ihe prelude and tbu in centive tD ihli triumph of liberty over tho innumerable bos'! of a barbarions and des potic invader. Man's destiny is tu be free to worship his Cod according to the dic tates ol his own conscience, and to estab lish the form of Government best adapted to secure bis rights and liberties. Kcason has long since exploded the slavish doc trine of the divine right of Kings. In the meantime, we ought to be aware that our Government is an object of inex tinguishable hale to the despots of the en-il. The existence of a free Democratic Repub lic any where is a standing reproach to the in; and il lliey had the power to immo late our insiiiu'.ions they would eagerly rush to the sacrifice, h ls our example which has disturbed the dismal and oppres sive calm ol despotism throughout the world, and encouraged mankind to assert their rights.
